Here's Where You Know The Beyond The Edge Celeb Cast From

If you're a fan of "Survivor" and celebrity reality TV then CBS has you covered this spring with their newest series, "Beyond The Edge" (via TV Insider). The show features nine celebrities as they navigate the dangerous jungles of Panama and endure intense conditions such as torrential downpours, high temperatures, and dangerous wildlife as they push their limits in hopes of outlasting the other stars and taking home some money for their selected charities. The celebs will be forced to work together as teamwork will reportedly be an important way to survive the 14-day adventure.


"Beyond The Edge is the most extreme celebrity format ever attempted," executive producer Greg Goldman said. "The day before we started principal photography, all of the producers looked at each other with the sinking feeling that this celebrity cast might see where they were living for up to two weeks and just bolt. To the contrary, we were amazed by how these icons pushed themselves to their breaking points, showing incredible mental fortitude and physical tenacity."

So, which celebrities were brave enough to take on the physically and mentally demanding challenge?

According to Distractify, the cast of "Beyond The Edge" is very diverse. The show will feature nine celebrities battling the elements as they look to survive in the jungle for 14 days. One of those contestants is TV icon Jodie Sweetin. The actress is best known for her role as Stephanie Tanner in the sitcom "Full House" and the show's sequel series, "Fuller House." She is competing for Girls, Inc., a nonprofit that encourages all girls to be the strongest versions of themselves.


Sweetin will be joined by supermodel Paulina Porizkova. The stunner shot to fame as a cover girl in the 1980s and 90s (via CBS News). Most recently, she has been speaking out about ageism in the modeling world, and is competing on the series in hopes of giving away the prize money to the ACLU.

However, the two women will have their work cut out for them as they'll be competing against three former professional athletes.

"Beyond The Edge” will feature three athletes who know what it takes to push their bodies to the limits, per Distractify. Former NBA champion Metta World Peace (formerly known as Ron Artest) has signed on to compete on the reality competition show's first season. Since leaving the NBA, he has been advocating for mental health issues, and even created his own charity The Artest University, which creates health initiatives for young people who play sports.


Meanwhile, ex-NFL star Mike Singletary will also try his hand at the wilderness competition. The former player and current coach will be competing for the charity Changing Our Perspective. Speaking with the Chicago Sun Times, Singletary admitted that the experience was one that he won't soon forget. "It was pretty amazing and beautiful at the same time. Scary at times," he stated.

Former Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis is also ready to take on the Panama jungle. The retired football player is now in the MMA Professional Fighters League, which means he's been keeping up with his fitness. Lewis spent 17 years in the league before calling it quits in 2013. He'll be competing for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.


Meanwhile, two reality TV stars will also try their hand at the outdoor adventure.

Reality TV may be stressful, but it's nothing like what "Beyond The Edge" is serving up to stars like Colton Underwood. Underwood is best known for appearing as "The Bachelor" in 2019. He made headlines again in 2021 when he came out as gay, per The Washington Post. Underwood later landed his own Netflix docuseries titled "Coming Out Colton," which documented the process of coming out to those close to him and getting comfortable with his new lifestyle. He's playing for his own Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, which supports people with cystic fibrosis (via Distractify).


Meanwhile, fellow reality star, Eboni K. Williams will also be competing on the CBS wilderness challenge series. Williams is known for her roles as a television host and cast member on "The Real Housewives of New York City." However, she's also a lawyer and has written a book titled "Pretty Powerful: Appearance, Substance, and Success." Williams will compete for the charity Safe Horizons, which focuses on victim services in the United States.

The reality stars will be battling the elements, but they'll also be competing against two country music singers along the way.

Distractify reports that country music superstar Lauren Alaina has also joined the cast of "Beyond The Edge." The singer is known for her hits such as "If the World Was a Small Town" and "Like My Mother Does." She was also the second place contestant during Season 19 of "American Idol." In the past, she also competed on "Dancing With The Stars" and made it all the way to the finals (via WBWN). She's also tried her hand at acting, starring in movies like "Roadhouse Romance" and "Road Less Traveled," per TV Guide. Alaina will be playing for The Next Door, which provides safety to women recovering from substance abuse in Nashville, Tennessee.


Country singer Craig Morgan will also be braving the wilderness in hopes of giving some money to his charity, Operation Finally Home, an organization that builds homes for wounded, ill, and injured veterans and their families. Morgan is best known for his hits like "Something to Write Home About" and "Redneck Yacht Club."

The nine stars competing on "Beyond The Edge" will have their work cut out for them, and fans will likely be rooting them on as they take on the challenge of surviving in the jungle in the name of charity.
